Piano Bench

Good morning and happy Monday!  I recently found this piano bench at a garage sale for a couple of bucks.....yes only four bucks to be exact!!!  What a deal, right?  I scooped it up quickly with a big smile!  Here is a before picture of her....she just needs a little make-over.
I gave her a quick cleaning and brushed a coat of primer on.  I then chose a light gray to paint on the outside.  I wanted to paint the storage part of the piano bench a different color so I chose pink.  I absolutely love pink and gray together.  Here are a couple of after pictures.

I hope you have a great Monday!
